Forestry Stewardship Funds for Landowners
The Last Green Valley is part of the Southern New England Heritage Forest (SNEHF), a 1.49 million-acre unfragmented forest corridor stretching along the Connecticut and Rhode Island border to the Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts. Bounded by more heavily urbanized areas, with more than one million nearby residents, the SNEHF has an astonishing 76% forest cover and offers one of the last viable wildlife corridors from southern to northern New England. The SNEHF is a green oasis and the last undeveloped region in the coastal sprawl from Boston to Washington, D.C.

TLGV has partnered with many organizations to bring additional funding to the region through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. Click here for current funding opportunities.
